    I currently have a Wii and really want to play it, but no, I'm not buying it. If the Wii isn't sold within a few days I'll rent it.

    It is NOT the hardest Zelda ever but the most in-depth due to what i said above, about the controls. It's difficult if this is your FIRST Zelda game you ever played. Well, back to the game, time to work on the latter half of the adventure, im near getting the first sacred flame to forge the Goddess' sword :rockout:

    Nope. Once you forge the Goddess' sword with the 3 sacred flames it makes it the Master sword.

    I just beat it. The story is drastically different from the previous games. As pointed out previously, there is no Ganondorf. I was disappointed by the lack of Epona/Hyrule Field instead replacing it with a bird and a Wind Waker-like exploration instead (in the sky instead of on water). My greatest complaint though is the controls. They relied too heavily on Wii MotionPlus which made many components of the game needlessly complicated and/or annoying.

    Out of 10, I'd give it 7 (-3 for controls). I think my first play thru was 40-50 hours.


    Zelda II: The Adventure of Link*

    And I completely agree. It's the only Zelda I got my hands on that I have yet to beat. :(


    Most of the bosses didn't give me much pause except the very, very last. I had to consult the Skeikah stone to figure that one out--then the controls interferred by not doing the downward strike on demand. I got it on my third attempt with 4x Health Potion++ in my inventory (I think I only used two of them). The second attempt, I died because the effin controls wouldn't let me take my potion. :mad:

    I agree, the controls are a bit awkward sometimes. I'm just over 30 hours right now.

    You would need a motion+, nunchuku controller, and a wireless sensor bar to set it up properly. Also check game compatibility.

    im already testing it, and its compatibility is very good (with some minor graphical issues), just emulated wiimotion plus so not accurate.
